Joint statement UCI-WADA on Commission of Inquiry

WADA President John Fahey and UCI President Brian Cookson had a private meeting yesterday on the occasion of the World Conference on Doping in Sport in Johannesburg.

They agreed the broad terms under which the UCI will conduct a Commission of Inquiry into the historical doping problems in cycling. They further agreed that their respective colleagues would co-operate to finalize the detailed terms and conditions of the Inquiry to ensure that the procedures and ultimate outcomes would be in line with the fundamental rules and principles of the World Anti-Doping Code.

Both Presidents pledged that their organization would work harmoniously to help the sport of cycling move forward in the vanguard of clean sports.
